We at LeConte Lodge join the rest of America in observance of Memorial Day, as we honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country. We remember the fallen men and women in uniform who so proudly and bravely wore our nation’s colors. Thank you to those courageous souls whom we have lost, and to their families, in standing up for so much on behalf of our nation. We’re due for some much improved skies today across all elevations, with a more equal distribution of sun shining from top to bottom. There is a slight chance of some clouds popping up throughout the day, but relatively clear and pleasant conditions are on tap. Winds should be calm, and temps will make a steady climb out of the cold cellar we’ve been enduring this past weekend. Once again starting in the upper 30s, but we should get comfortably into the 50s later this afternoon. Not really a threat for rain these next couple days, but certainly come ready with an extra layer for warmth until summer makes its return.
